Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday everyone, this is what's on the menu for this week. As always remember that some days I switch meals around or end up not making them if something comes up, but for the most part I stick to everything on here INCLUDING breakfast and lunch.

If you want to join in with your own menu or take a look at all the other ladies participating, I suggest you grab a cup of coffee....a HUGE one LOL and then head over to Laura's blog "I'm an Organizing Junkie", there's so much yummy stuff being shared I'm sure you'll find inspiration for your next week's menus too.

Since I've been planning menus for years now, oh about 9 or so, I find that there's days I draw a complete blank as to what I'm cooking. I've decided to try and make some set theme nights to work around.......here's what I've got so far, I'll add the others as I go along and I'll start using these theme nights next week.

MONDAY -

TUESDAY -

WEDNESDAY - Portuguese Meals (All the ones I grew up eating)

THURSDAY - Slow Cooking Day

FRIDAY - Pizza Night

SATURDAY -

SUNDAY - Soups

  1. There are days that I can't seem to come up with anything to cook either! I wish it would be cold enough here to have soup, but I might just up and do it anyway this weekend.

  2. Yum---everything sounds so tasty!! I've had to change up my menus to have less carbs. I haven't been watching my carbs and I'm committed to doing better!

    I've bookmarked "Dad's favorite chicken" to try it out!!

  7. I love the pictures. They are making me really hungry. So, do you just spread cream cheese in your crepe and top with strawberries??? Thanks for visiting my blog.

  8. Desiree - I spread the cream cheese and top with sliced strawberries, or I mix cream cheese with strawberry jam and spread on the crepes :)

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog. Always nice to hear from others out there in the blogosphere. Also glad to hear that someone who has been doing menus for so long has blank days too!

    Your menu looks great! I'll be coming back to look at your recipes a little later for some yummy new ideas. (I'm short on time right now)

  10. Hi Sandra

    I saw your spaghetti pie on another blog and thought I must check in with you, so thanks for also checking in with me.

    As usual, all your meals make me droool. Yum, yum, yum!

    I definitely don't intend to do anything strenuous in PE - the most I plan to do is stroll on the beachfront while eating an icecream :)

  17. I really like the theme nights. I may try to do something like that once a month just to jazz things up a little!! Thanks for sharing!

  18. I like your theme nights too. :-)

  19. You'll have to let us know how the themed days work out. I was considering this type of set up just last week, my mom said growing up they had the same meal on that particular day each week. I just figured I am too adventurous for that and would get sick of it, but a broader theme like you are talking about could work.

    Have a yummy week! ;-)

  30. After reading practically every one of your entries, I have to say, i think i would really enjoy portugese food! It seems to suit my tastes. All the ingredients are what i would normally use. I have so many of your recipes to try that I just copied them to a folder hah. Thanks again and please don't ever give up such an inspiring blog!!
